What does this message mean? "montage.im6: Wrong data type 9 for "PixelXDimension"; tag ignored."

Asked by Amr Ibrahim on 2014-10-06

I get these messages when I try to combine two TIF files using "montage":

$ montage Document_1.tif Document_0.tif -geometry +0+0 combine.jpg

montage.im6: Wrong data type 9 for "PixelXDimension"; tag ignored. `TIFFReadCustomDirectory' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFWarnings/768.
montage.im6: Wrong data type 9 for "PixelYDimension"; tag ignored. `TIFFReadCustomDirectory' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFWarnings/768.
montage.im6: Wrong data type 9 for "PixelXDimension"; tag ignored. `TIFFReadCustomDirectory' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFWarnings/768.
montage.im6: Wrong data type 9 for "PixelYDimension"; tag ignored. `TIFFReadCustomDirectory' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFWarnings/768.

The TIF images are correctly combined into a single JPG file. But I don't understand the messages.

Some data in the meta information of the image is not well-formed, so it is ignored.
In your case it's not relevant.
